Henry Isaac Brown and Sarah Flower Turner of Midsomer Norton
My great grandparents Henry Isaac Brown and his wife Sarah Flower Turner (b. 1845) came to the U.S. in the 1880s. They were born in Midsomer Norton/Ashwick and some of their children were born in Midsomer Norton. The children included: Amelia, Elizabeth, Mary Ann, George, Henry, Gilbert, William James, Louisa and Melinda. Melinda, my grandmother, was the only one NOT born in England (Midsomer Norton) or Wales (Abergavenny/Pontypool/Tredegar area). Sarah's mother was Elizabeth Hill, who married George Turner in 1849, when Sarah was 4. Henry Isaac Brown's parents were Edward and Elizabeth (___?___) Brown. Anybody with any links/information/leads - please contact me! Thanks in advance for your kindness! Jim
My name is James Farr.
My Farr lineage is from the Pontypool, Monmouth, Wales area:
1. William Farr (m) Catherine Williams
2. William Farr (m) Mary Edwards
3. Edward John Farr (m) Elizabeth Jane Evans (dau. of Enock Evans)
4. Thomas Charles Farr (m1) Eva Miller (m2) Lucy Evans
5. Albert Charles Farr (from m1) (m) Melinda Brown
6. Lynwood Albert Farr (m) Lura Annie Austin
7. James Bruce Farr
My Brown lineage is from the Midsomer Norton, Somerset, England area:
1. Henry Isaac Brown (m) Sarah Flower Hill (went by Turner because George Turner, b.1819, married her mother after she and her sister were born-whether he is the biological father not known)
2. Melinda Brown (m) Albert Charles Farr
3. Lynwood Albert Farr (m) Lura Annie Austin
4. James Bruce Farr
I am looking for the "missing links" for Farr, Brown, and Turner. There is a "Flower" link, because Sarah Flower Turner's middle name likely comes from her maternal grandmother, Mary Flower, who married Isaac Hill.
On my mother's side of the family are the surnames: Grindel/Grindell/Grindal, Austin, Benson, Blake, Snow, and Hopkins. Stephen Hopkins, who sailed on the Mayflower, and his daughter, Constant/Constance are my link to the Mayflower.
After gathering bits and pieces of information from the 1960s until now, I am now retired and have time to do some extensive research. Any information you would like to share would be greatly appreciated.
